Buy Junk Silver Coins to Maximize Your Silver Investment

Share this info!

There are many ways to invest in silver bullion, but one of the best ways is to buy junk silver coins. What do we mean by junk silver coins? U.S. dimes, quarters, and half dollars minted prior to 1965 are 90% silver coins, commonly referred to as “junk silver coins,” as they don’t contain .999 fine silver, unlike other silver investment options, such as the American silver eagle.

Why should you consider buying junk silver coins? Junk silver coins make a lot of sense from a number of different standpoints. First and foremost, they are highly recognizable, as anyone in the U.S. that invests in silver is familiar with the silver content of pre-1965 U.S. dimes, quarters, and half dollars. The silver content of these coins is also known abroad, so if there’s the possibility that you may expatriate at some point in the future, you shouldn’t hesitate to buy junk silver coins, as there should be a market regardless of your ultimate destination.

Lastly, and possibly the most appealing aspect, is that you can buy junk silver coins at some of the lowest premiums out of the silver bullion investments available. Unless you’re referring to key date or low mintage coins, these coins typically just sell for a slight premium above their silver value, making it an affordable way to invest in silver bullion. Additionally, even though the price of silver is up for the year, silver dimes, quarters, and half dollars can still be bought at an affordable price.

On a relative scale, junk silver coins are the third most affordable option out of the U.S. silver bullion investments available. In the future, we’ll go into further detail regarding the affordability of the U.S. silver investments available, but in the meantime, the takeaway from this article should be that there aren’t too many other silver bullion investments that are recognized the world over that can be purchased at such an affordable price.
